Artist Statement

These artworks explore the relationship between man and his environment, situated in the contrived context of society. They function as a continually developing narrative, building up a complex existence of the figure that I developed in my first piece ‘Devolution’.

The original series of 5 Lino Prints maps out a human’s progression through life. Despite one’s growth and development, the being is paradoxically deconstructed at the expense of a consumptive society. The repetition of basic geometry metaphorically stands for the loss of individuality in a maze of homogeny.

These fragments of authenticity are gradually pieced back together through my other works; each image unfurling another insight into the life of the figure. The idea parallels human temperament. There is nothing concrete about the individual; constantly subject to change, both deliberate and consequentially. They are unpredictable beings, and my artwork intends to embrace this progression amid a moving environment, so that the individual may be preserved rather than disparaged.
